It doesn’t have to mean some terrible breaking of the relationship, though. My childhood best friend and I grew apart as we went on our separate adult paths. Conversations just started getting further apart and shorter, and now we’re just “happy birthday!” friends… and that’s okay! She was an invaluable part of my childhood, but not of my adulthood. Some of your friends, even your best pal from high school, may not be the best friends for you as you go to adulthood.
This one is starting to creep up on me and my sister. Our parents are in their 60’s. Retired, in okay-ish health, but they’re starting to show their age. The worst part though, is they live over 800 miles away from me. I visit when I can, but it’s a long trip, and I only get so much time off of work. Once a year is about all I can do. If I look at the life expectancy for my country, I have less than 15 trips left to see them.
